Given his previous record of hostility to pre-born life, today’s confirmation of Xavier Becerra to serve as head of the Department of Health and Human Services foreshadows the coming of government sanctioned antagonism towards people with deeply held religious convictions.
Mr. Becerra has been a strong supporter of taxpayer-funded abortions, sex-selective abortions and while a member of Congress, voted in favor of partial-birth abortion. In the past, he’s also tried to force pregnancy resource centers, organizations committed to the preservation of life, to actively promote the destruction of it.
He is a lawyer by training. HHS needs a capable candidate with “health” in their background. Absent that experience, coupled with an unrelenting disregard for the most vulnerable, Xavier Becerra is the wrong choice to lead the agency responsible for protecting the physical well-being of all Americans.
